My Students

As a teacher in a low-income district, my students come face-to-face daily with different types of challenges whether they are social or personal. Through all the different challenges that my students face each day, I manage to keep an engaged and enthusiastic classroom.

My students are very eager to learn and explore each obstacle they may face each and every day.

When my students enter school and especially my classroom, they are ready and anxious to learn. My students are faced with challenges in reading and comprehension skills. As their teacher, it is my duty to encourage my students to build their confidence in reading, math, and writing while making sure they continue mastering other subjects as well.

In my classroom, students are very engaged in the different centers that involve different skills in reading, math, science, social studies, and writing. Having schools supplies will help promote my students' learning skills . My students will also be able to use these materials during center time and whole group. Through your donation, my students will become more eager about and engaged in learning.

My Project

All of my students want to be great writers in the future. We need supplies to keep our writing pieces stored together.

Help my students shoot for the stars by give them folders to keep their writing in.

My students are always ready to write a great story for everyone to read. My students need a way to keep their writing activities organized. Having these folders will allow students to keep their writing in one place. The folders will also allow students to take their writing piece out without tearing the paper. I would also love to provide folders to all the third grade students at my school.
